Wooden tree

This tree is simple to make but takes time. I found my 4 year would help but quickly got distracted, while my 5 1/2 year old was more into it and could do more. To make we started with a square base and worked our way up, hot gluing as we went. Then used small twigs that are flexible to weave around the tree to make it look more circle. When it gets "old" we plan on using it for our nature tree this year and covering it in peanut butter, bird seed and other things before placing it outside. 
Note~We used all sticks and twigs we found outside, we just let them sit for little to make sure nothing was living in or on them.

Valentines day sensory bin for all ages!

A sensory bin is a bin that engages some if not all of the 5 senses. Mine did not include scent or taste but was followed up by Valentines day candy as a treat. Now that my kids are no longer toddlers but still love these bins I try to include things I can use later on for different crafts or decorating. So for this bin I added heart shaped buckets, shredded paper, stickers, necklaces, Valentines day clothes pins, and a heart shaped bell door hanger. Recently I have noticed my kids enjoy adding other toys to play time and I love that. Seeing what they come up with and hearing the stories change as they grow is pretty neat to see. Anyway I hope this inspires you to try a sensory bin out with your baby/toddler/or child, and have a good rest of your morning, evening or night! Bye!
